visit to hospital er

have awoken today a tad exhausted from the result of a lovely (not) visit to canberra emergency department last night.
goob came down with the lurgy on monday - but instead of remaining as a respiratory flu thing (like it was for mr w. and for me - she started to get more and more pains in her abdomen - and more exactly on the right hand side (in that appendix region).
last night she was curled in a ball in loads of pain - tears - the works - it wasn't a pretty thing.
tried to get in to see a doctor yesterday afternoon - but alas one needs to book a year in advance to get a doctors appointment down here (ok - that may be a little exaggerated - but it's impossible to get appointments without some major lead in time) - so we made the decision to head to the er department and try to get to the bottom of the cause.
blood tests were taken - vitals were checked - diagnosis - well there really isn't one!
they think it might be viral (linked to the lurgy & lymph nodes etc) - but for now we just have to wait and see how she goes.
she's awoken ok - no major stabbing pain like last night - but it's still 'there'.

goob is my 'hospital and strange medical thingy' child.
she's already had 4 operations in her 15 years of life (infected tear duct (6mths old) / trigger thumb (explained a  little here - but beware there's a yucky visual there!) / removal of a little growth on her knee / tonsil removal); 3 broken arms (2 right/1 left) and a broken collar bone (falling out of bed while legs were wrapped up in the bed covers when she was 2 - lovely!).
we're used to the hospital waiting game goob and i!!!!

thank goodness there are no netball games on today.
yay for school holiday goodness.
triple j has school hols for the next 2 weeks.
goob and eky still have one week of school - as we live on the border of nsw and act - and none of the holidays match up this year - they are all out (the holidays i mean) by one week - bliss (not).

i'm off to potter around and take things easy today.

hope the world is calmer where ever you are.

  1. oh no! that is scary. Poor Goob. She has had her fair share and no doubt your heart needs a bit of a rest Cheryl! xx

  2. Oh so sorry to hear that. What a shock. Glad everything has kind of settled down and hope Goob feels better soon. Lucky you with 2 sets of school holidays! Not! Only joking. Kind of lol. Hopefully things will settle down and you can all start pottering around together and have a rest! It's very stressful having sick children isn't it?! xo
